ESEA Title I Allocation Policy: Demonstration Study. Results of First Year Implementation, Part 1.
Vanecko, James J.; And Others
Data from the first two years (1975-76 and 1976-77) of a three year study of Demonstration Compensatory Education Projects are presented in this report. The demonstration study was designed to produce evidence about proposed changes in the allocation of Title I funds. Of the thirteen districts chosen for the study, eleven elected to change their Title I school selection procedures from poverty to achievement criteria. All thirteen schools chose to expand the numbers of schools and/or students receiving Title I services. The report describes the allocation policy changes made by the districts. It also presents the effects of these changes on the characteristics of participating students and the services that they received, focusing on changes in the achievement level, poverty status, and minority status of Title I students. Since the large majority of Title I resources available to the Demonstration districts is allocated to language arts instruction in the elementary grades, the receipt of such instruction is emphasized. Appended to the report is information on the sampling plan, data sources, and analytic methods utilized in the research, current regulations with respect to eligibility and targeting procedures, and site by site breakdowns of the data.
